Time Passages is a great read...! 15 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I hope you don't take too much stock in the prior "review." Lipsitz's Time Passages is a great introduction to thinking critically about different forms of popular culture (TV, film, music, and so on). Lipsitz links a diverse range of pop cultural forms with the larger worlds around us. That takes a lot of doing, especially since we take for granted most of what we consume passively. Most of us figure that entertainment doesn't hold any significant meaning beyond our own individual enjoyment. Lipsitz reminds us that what we often take for granted is almost never taken for granted by corporate elites who spend a lot of time and money trying to figure out how to create loyalties, tastes and styles emptied of substantive content. The book also reminds us that pop culture is a place where ordinary folks have also tried to say important things about the world as they see it and sometimes as how they'd like to see it.

A Classic in Popular Culture Studies 17 Oct. 2010
By Joe Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've taught the history of popular culture at the graduate and undergraduate levels for over a decade, and Lipsitz' book is a solid classic in the field, in print for almost 20 years and still not out of date. If you are looking for books that reassure the reader that equality, freedom, and liberty are the "whole story" of US history, I would recommend other books. If you want "interesting facts about popular culture," this may not be what you want either. But if you are seeking to understand why popular culture my worth your attention, this is an outstanding place to start. Highly recommended!

Too much theory, not enough history 26 Jan. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My main problem with this book is that the author makes sweeping statements and claims about the role of various forms of popular culture in various eras without providing any historical data or close analysis of any popular culture from those times. Instead, he promisciously cites a very broad range of theorists to back up his otherwise groundless assertions.

The worst 31 Oct. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This might be the worst book I have ever read. If you're a minority and want to read propaganda stating that the white man is oppressing you (with no real facts-just jargon) and is the reason for all of the mishaps in your life, then this is the book for you.
